(Reuters) - Stephen Hawking, who sought to explain some of the most complicated questions of life while himself working under the shadow of a likely premature death, has died at 76.

I sailed a wild, wild sea
Climbed up a tall, tall mountain
I met an old, old man
Beneath a weeping willow tree
He said now if you got some questions
Go and lay them at my feet
But my time here is brief
So you'll have to pick just three

[Chorus]
And I said
What do you do with the pieces of a broken heart
And how can a man like me remain in the light
And if life is really as short as they say
Then why is the night so long
And then the sun went down
And he sang for me this song

See I once was a young fool like you
Afraid to do the things
That I knew I had to do
So I played an escapade just like you
I played an escapade just like you
I sailed a wild, wild sea
Climbed up a tall, tall mountain
I met an old, old man
He sat beneath a sapling tree
He said now if you got some questions
Go and lay them at my feet
But my time here is brief
So you'll have to pick just three

[Chorus]
And I said
What do you do with the pieces of a broken heart
And how can a man like me remain in the light
And if life is really as short as they say
Then why is the night so long
And then the sun went down
And he sang for me this song

And here is a story I wrote with them:
Thou, mother, I give ye not worms that flow. Spit. Ashes. What pulls that? We who give ye old bark? That fire? Hear what this old man hand ye. Hear what flows from this man!

Thanks, Winchell!
"A British research team has put together a list of what they called 'ultraconserved words,' or words that have remained basically unchanged for a stunning 15,000 years. The researchers say this is because they all originate from the same ancient mother tongue -- a language used toward the end of the last ice age. That language tumbled from its tower of Babel to become seven language families, which all sound like they're out of Game of Thrones: Altaic, Chukchi-Kamchatkan, Dravidian, Inuit-Yupik, Indo-European, Kartvelian, and Uralic.

"The 700 modern languages used by more than half of earth's population descend from those seven original families. Researchers scanned them for cognates: words that sound and mean the same things in different languages, like "father" -- padre, pere, pater, pitar, etc. From those, they put together proto-words, or what they believed were the cognates' ancestral form. Ultimately, they found 23 words shared by at least four of the seven language families, making them the oldest and longest-lasting words in English. [...] Thou, I, mother, give, bark, fire, ashes, spit, man/male, hand, hear, flow, old, this, that, pull, worm, ye, not, we, who, what." (Inc.)

Why Ted has passions and interests, some deep and abiding, but is never a fan’. That apostrophe? It’s doing its job: Fan. Short for fanatic. Know many fanatics worthy of the trouble? It even more creepy over celebrity or video media than it is over religion or dogma.

So, over the last couple of days I built this perch for our house chooks. They have been sleeping on top of the mudroom door, but that isn’t really suitable for the long term.

It measures 1.2 x 1.0m, and has perches 30.5, 61, and 91.5 cm in and up respectively, that’s 1 foot, 2 feet and 3 feet.

Still need to seal and paint it, but they should be using it very soon.

An incredible use of lettering as the primary focus for a music video and for a song I find to be quite inspirational.
T: What is life but putting one foot in front of the other and finding a better place to die? Oh, yeah, enjoying all the beauty and wonder and magic and kindness and generosity of the world and the critters who inhabit it. But for dealing with the rest? This song helps me. Might help you too.

One Foot by Fun.
I'm standing in Brooklyn just waiting for something to happen
I can’t help but love thinking that everyone doesn’t get it
To my left there’s a window
Where did I go?
My reflection just planted two rows of coal
And bad ideas, but ideas nonetheless, and so

I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die
I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die

I happened to stumble upon a chapel last night
And I can’t help but back up when I think of what happens inside
I got friends locked in boxes, that's no way to live
What you're callin' a sin isn’t up to them
After all, (after all) I thought we were all your children,
But I will die for my own sins thanks a lot
We’ll rise up ourselves thanks for nothing at all,
So up off the ground up our forefathers are nothing but dust now

I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die
I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die

Maybe I should learn to shut my mouth
I am over twenty-five and I can’t make a name for myself some nights I break down and cry
I’m lucky that my father’s still alive he’s been fighting all his life
And if this is all I’ve ever known then may his soul live on forever in my song

I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die
I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die

In front of the other one
In front of the other one
Just a better place to die
